Take a Bread Class, or buy a voucher, it’s the gift that just keeps on giving.
I had the most wonderful time in Ma Baker’s Introduction to Bread class. Liz is warm, generous with her knowledge and a truly excellent teacher. She took the time to explain all the interesting science-y bits behind baking a stellar loaf and patiently repeated instructions for those of us trying to wrangle our sticky dough. On top of all that, I left with so much amazing bread (including buns and even a focaccia!), that I will very happily be munching away on my efforts all week. Well worth the time, effort and money! Thanks Liz.

What a great day! Liz is the Yoda of the bread world, what she doesn’t know about bread cannot be found in this universe. She used her Jedi tricks to make me bake a couple of loaves and some buns, plus some tomato focaccia - all of which tasted amazing! Somehow all this info has stuck and I make them all at home now - and remember, this is a guy who has never baked anything in his life! for a great few hours learning the skills, Liz’s course is the only one to book - all others are just cheap imitations. Go forward and bake well Huw March 2019
My friend had bought me the course for Christmas (& came too). We were welcomed into Liz’s home to learn the alchemy (or not) of making great sourdough.
It was worth coming just for the amazing focaccia for lunch :)
Liz is a great teacher … if I can produce 4 loaves anyone can … the sourdough crackers were a step too far for me but I was very chuffed that my sourdough produced the most amazing bacon sandwich this morning.
A really fun but instructional way to spend a day and I’m now inspired to make my own bread. To go with the wine & cheese :)
Would highly recommend for bakers and those with no idea like me .

I was given a gift of a day’s sourdough baking course with Ma Baker and have just been to the course. Liz Wilson couldn’t have been a more welcoming, calm and friendly teacher. Over the 6 hours, a small group of four of us learnt how to prepare, knead, shape and bake four different breads and sourdough crackers, all based on a sourdough starter. We were welcomed with tea or coffee, had a coffee break with home-made biscuits and a very nice lunch with home-made bread and crackers. And in between Liz very efficiently and encouragingly taught us all the fundamentals. We took home lots of delicious bread but also very helpful recipes and notes about all we had learnt and more information on useful websites for sourdough baking. I highly recommend the course. You will have fun and learn a lot.

I decided a bread making class would be the perfect gift for my partner, and how the course excelled both of our expectations. Ultimately the course is made in a variety of ways. Setting was lovely and calm, lots of time to relax and enjoy the baking / chat with the other course attendees Course itself - as an intro to bread making, it certainly hit the brief and more. We learnt about recipes, techniques, science and discussed the topic against current moving trends. Liz is a fantastic host and clearly knows her stuff. The course was informative, practical and really fun. Such a wholesome (forgive the bread pun) few hours made even better by our cool and relaxed teacher. We had a blast There are a few little surprises that we appreciated and weren’t expecting from the course (but wont give them all away) We would certainly recommend to our friends and family and hope to begin our bread making journey Thanks Mike and Katherine - Feb - 2019
I had an absolutely wonderful time at Liz’ class. She is a superb teacher- she gives clear and friendly instructions on how to bake and also explains the fascinating science behind the whole process. Lunch was delicious, and I can’t wait to bake the recipes we learnt! Thanks so much. Nathan Feb 2019
